breezy, overcast 18 degree days… what perfect beach weather!
we weren’t expecting much but this was the nicest day of our stay in barcelona so we made an outdoor day of it at park guell and the late afternoon walking the main promenade of barceloneta beach. we started close to the w hotel and walked eastwards towards the casino and the mixed bag of things we saw were as follows:
further along the strip we found a quieter area to sit down in some concrete chairs that were still warm from the afternoon sun. it overlooked two piers filled with fishermen and a gym where a few guys put on quite the show. the muscleheads were doing their thing and then these gymnast/breakers were practicing aerial tricks on a set of uneven bars, trying to throw 360s while in the air and grabbing the bar on the way back down. or flipping around and trying to stall/stand on top of the bar mid rotation. pretty cool to sit back and take in the show…
later we found out from our airbnb host that there that the long coastline is divided up into different beaches for different, um, clientele… if you will. we’ll call him a pioneer for the beach season
